Construct Your Own an artillery projectile striking armor plating. Construct a problem in which you find the force exerted by the projectile on the plate. Among the things to be considered are the mass and speed of the projectile and the distance over which its speed is reduced. Your instructor may also wish for you to consider the relative merits of depleted uranium versus lead projectiles based on the greater density of uranium.
Step-by-step solution: We have to compare the exerted force between two particles, So, the exerted force between them is calculated by, Step 1 of 4 Artillery of mass 0.400 kg is projectile and the mass strikes to armor plating. The speed of the projectile is 12.0 m/s. Also, the distance that the projectile travelled to stop is . Calculate the force acting on the artillery. The angle for the projectile is . So, the horizontal velocity is: Here is horizontal velocity and is velocity of projectile. Substitute, for and for , Hence, the horizontal velocity of projectile is = 10.4 m/s Step 2 of 4 The expression to find the time in terms of distance and velocity is: Here, is time and is distance. Substitute, for and for in the above expression, Here the final speed of artillery is 0 m/s. Hence change in speed is: Change in time is (considered initial time 0 s): Hence the time in terms of distance and velocity is t = 0.961s.
